The Best Writing App: iA Writer
Daily Blog forteen/365
The app that I use to write blogs is iA Writer. I was looking into few options. And tested few as well like the top-rated Bear app and also tried to work on Evernote just for writing blogs. iA writer stood apart because of its clean design and the quick preview option. The keyboard shortcuts work well also. I loved Bear app as well, but the lack of sharing the article directly to medium and WordPress from within the app was a bummer. Only if it had that feature, I would have gone with Bear app. The Bear app has a clean design as well (cleaner than iA Writer). But feature wise iA Writer is much more powerful.
I love the Focus Mode feature. You can choose between Sentence, Paragraph or Typewriter to focus on. I usually go with Typewriter Focus Mode. Another great feature is the Syntax Highlight. With this feature enabled, the app automatically highlights Adjectives, Nouns, Verbs, Adverbs and Conjunctions in different colors.
Even their iOS app is pretty great. The app is not free though. There is a one-time payment.
